Hi John,

I am the McIDAS support contact for Unidata.

I suspect that the file SCHEMA may have been deleted from the directory
into which the McIDAS-XCD decoders are configured to write their ouput,
but there are other possibilities as well.

Is Dan still at USU?

>You are welcome to login as mcidas to allegan or webcat.

I can login and look around if you give me the passwords for the
'mcidas' and 'ldm' accounts on the ingest machine (still allegan?).
If you agree to this, please send the passwords _without reference
to account names or machine to me at address@hidden
